It is important to have a both a good looking website, and a well functioning web site. That's why my sites are designed with that in mind. It is important your visitors can browse your site without feeling confused.
Depending on your budget or your needs bells and whistles are not necessarily needed for your site to be nice and professionally presentable. And sometimes over doing it graphically can be just as bad as not providing a clean and familiar layout.
I will work with you to come up with a design that meets your needs.
